Talk: The Utility of the Creative Process

John Michael Schert brings powerful lessons from the world of the arts to business. John Michael approaches issues as a ballet dancer who has translated his artistic process into a creative discipline for businesses and states the utility the creative process plays in decision-making. Using the creative process as an internal analysis tool, he helps corporate and civic leaders better develop an understanding of the balance of motivations from the intrinsic (purpose, emotion, passion) and the extrinsic (data, systems, regulations).
